We loved The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig. It's only 2.99.
The Secret History of the Pink Carnation is a genre-bending book. It begins by introducing Eloise Kelley, our heroine in designer shoes; but instead of being a Chick Lit chick, said heroine is a student researching an historical figure. It doesn't take too long before she finds a cache of diaries and letters, and pretty soon we are back in the 19th century following the adventures of English spies. This is a unique and funny book that is just the ticket for readers who want something really different.Buy it at A/iB/BN/K
